All Semester 1 2012 units requiring central examination must submit an examination request via the Examination Request System (Examsys) by 5 pm (EDST) on Monday 12 March. The system is now closed and no late requests will be accepted. Examination requests not received for units in Semester 1 will need to be held as School-based examinations.  School-based examinations are not administered centrally nor are they included in the final examination timetable.

There have been examination requests submitted requesting set dates for the exams. Please be aware Schools/academic staff may not request examinations for specific units to be held on a specific date or time.

Examinations for students enrolled in any course, or course cohort, with a professional experience component may be scheduled at any time during a minimum of two weeks out of the three-week official examination period. We have received requests to schedule some cohorts in only one week of the examinations period. While we will do all we can to assist with these requests, it may be necessary for the student to sit for a deferred examination.

Examinations will be scheduled as outlined in the Examination Policy and Procedures – Staff.; Lecturers-in-Charge should be familiar with the Examination Policy and Procedures – Staff; the Examination Policy and Procedures – Students and the Guidelines for Heads of Schools and Lecturers on Disability Examination Adjustments.


Results for all units in standard semesters must be submitted within two weeks of the nominated examination date.

Results should only remain blank if all assessment requirements have not been completed.

Submission of Results via Student Connect is TE&Rs recommended method. Please refer to the user guides for entering results and the link for Banner reports on the Staff Results page.

Where a student cannot be awarded a final grade for a unit at the end of the study period, the grade will remain blank. If no final result grade has been assigned to the unit within twelve months of the end of the study period, the blank grade will be converted to Fail – NN. Once all blank grades are rolled to fail, the term code is removed from the nightly run on the Student System. No further grades entered for the term will be registered on the student’s transcript.
